    Well, if you had half a brain, you would have asked the author of ' XN Resource Editer '
    It seems the last update was Version 3.0.0.1, released 17th December 2005.
    Vista not even mentioned in the list of operating systems:

    "XN Resource Editor is a free, powerful, fully featured resource editor and PE module explorer for Windows 98, Windows
    2000 and Windows XP."


    What do you do at Haritham Technology ?

    I don't know what ' try to make the theme in vista ' means.

    However, XN Resource Editor will not work with Vista.
    XN Resource Editor is too old.
    You need a modern exe inspector for Vista files.

    I use PE Explorer:
    http://www.heaventools.com/overview.htm

    This program will edit the resources and decompile exe files.
    It is not free, you will have to pay for it.

    Did you copy the EXE to a new location first or are you potentially trying
    to edit a protected file that is potentially already in use?

    Since you're just talking about hacking resources, this really doesn't seem
    tooooooo Vista related. =)
